Where to Find the Best Freight Forwarder in Iran

Sep 24th 2015 at 4:56 AM

Freight services are popular in Iran for the shipment of a wide variety of goods across rail, road, air and sea. Iran is hailed as self-sufficient for freight services including those that operate on Non Vessel Owning Common Carrier (NVOCC) basis. A host of companies provide services at very competitive rates. A network of NVOCC encompasses all collaborating freight forwarding companies that look after all aspects of sales, stuffing and transport of containers from and to their ports. This facility is available in most cities in the country including Tehran, Bandar Abbas and Sari.

The type of freight forwarder a business needs depends on the type of goods being transported and the question of how the products need to be transported. For instance, containers for local destinations or neighboring countries can take the land route while goods to far-off countries need to use container ships. There are different types of freight forwarders and a business must be aware of what a forwarder does before making the final decision to choose one.

On-Sea Freight Forwarders
The full range of features that fall within this ambit include services for export and import, customs clearance, pre-carriage and on-carriage of cargo, the dissemination of regulations regarding export and import and end to end customized solutions for on-sea requisites. These companies also take special care of handling cargo that is cited as hazardous and needs expert management.

Iran leads the world in the sphere of oil production and enjoys dominance in exporting it to various destinations of the world. Some the top on-sea freight forwarders in the world are based in the country.

On-Road Freight Forwarders
For road transport of cargo, freight forwarding companies collaborate with transportation service businesses to cater to various industries. Whether one is looking for temperature controlled shipments, heavy and oversized cargo, agricultural products with low shelf life, these companies are able to tackle everything successfully.

In Iran, freight forwarding services not only promise to make the road transportation happen for you, they also take care of your warehousing requirements and custom clearances.

Air Freight Solutions
Air freight solutions include a whole gamut of services that ship goods across cities and countries successfully. Such facilities in Iran have been doing exceedingly well. Not only do the freight carriers help in direct export of consignments but they also ensure safe storage of the goods while in transit. The clients are also provided real time tracking information on their packages.

These companies also provide door-to-door services for delivery of goods which highlights their professionalism and focus on customer satisfaction.

Rail Freight Options
Iran’s freight forwarders also offer a very economical option for transport of goods through the railways. This mode of shipment is extremely fuel efficient and has a capacity of shipping thrice the amount that road freight can handle. The only downside of cargo transit through rail is that it takes more time. But, if the delivery schedule of goods is not time sensitive, then rail freight may be the way to transport goods in Iran. The principal rail carrier of Iran is the Trans-Asian Rail and it is very conducive for all import and exports that occur to and from Iran.

Freight forwarding in Iran presents many choices, a business can decide amongst them to ascertain the one that works best for the shipment being sent. The nature of the shipment and the estimated time for it to the reach its destination needs to be factored in while making the appropriate decision. Once the decision is made, businesses can lookup freight forwarding or NVOCC companies from various directories or simply by searching online. Asking the right questions and comparing the rates will help a business to make the correct choice and find the best freight forwarder in Iran for their needs.
